Breakfast of Champions

Most mornings, breakfast is a simple matter of cereals or breads and spreads.

But once in a while, we head out for a change, and the kids get to pick where to go. And very often, the food of choice is prata. This Indian dish, more accurately called paratha, was brought to Singapore by immigrants and has been adapted in so many amazing ways that you cannot but believe in the innate creativity of Singapore (at least when it comes to food!)

The perennial favourite for Athos and Porthos is tissue prata (aka paper prata), with a glass of iced Milo. It’s prata stretched really thin, drizzled with butter and sugar, and wrapped around into the shape of a hat. Mmmm… and look out for that sugar rush!

Here’s the one from Niqqi’s The Cheese Prata Shop near NUS.

  1. This reminds me of when I was their age and used to love having toasted white bread with butter and sugar or cornflakes with butter wads and sugar – it’s happy food!

  2. Oh my, that brings back memories! And there’s also toast with condensed milk. Or condensed milk mixed with Milo powder. Or just Milo powder. Oh the endless possibilities of sugar 🙂

  3. Condensed milk with horlicks. Or just condensed milk. How ’bout powdered milk by the teaspoons…yes, call me wierd. 🙂

  4. We join you in weirdness – both Athos and Porthos LOVE milk, condensed or powdered, by the spoon.
